Analytical Approaches to World Music Symposium: Call for Papers

Announcing the second installment of the Analytical Approaches to World Music symposium series, dedicated to theoretical, analytical, and cognitive approaches to rhythm and meter in all  global musical traditions, past and present. The symposium will be held virtually on 1-2 June and on 8-9 June 2023, and will be hosted by the CUNY Graduate Center, the Brook Center, and IFTAWM.

Our goal is to facilitate a gathering of some of the world’s leading scholars on these issues in a special four-day virtual research symposium the results of which will be available to scholars worldwide via publication in our eponymous  open-access, peer-reviewed online journal.

The call for papers is here.
